I was born and brought up in and around Ottery St Mary and love the Devon countryside and all it has to offer. I decided that I wanted to be a tree surgeon when I was only 8 years old and spent a great deal of my childhood climbing trees! When I left school I attended Bicton College to study aboriculture. Once qualified, I started work with a local tree surgery company and gained experience and further qualifications. I spent a year in Australia and, once I had finished travelling, I settled in Melbourne and worked as a tree surgeon there. On returning to the UK, I continued to work for a local tree surgery business, after a few years, I started my own tree surgery business – KM Treeworks. I take great pride in giving a professional and friendly service; most of my customers have come from recommendations from previous customers. As well as the quality of my workmanship many people also comment on the tidy state in which I leave the sites and gardens that I work in.

I look forward to hearing from you and am happy to give you a no obligation quote for any of the services listed on this website.
